Above: Group picture with the three monkeys…
I’m not a fan of resort towns, but we’re here in Eilat for a few days before we cross the border into Egypt for New Years Eve.
I had a great night out last night because I was with great company – people I met through couchsurfing (we met Michael at the bus station in Jerusalem and he happens to also be a couchsurfer)! From salsa at Mike’s Place (our host Liran is a very good salsa dancer), to live music from Everyday People at the Three Monkeys, to the exhilarating fire ball experience at 2am! The final plateau was getting tickets to a private rave at the Dolphin Reefs. And it was all done on a healthy student budget – I didn’t spend a penny! A night to remember from Eilat!
Look out for the video of my fireball experience… Have you tried this ride before?
The fireball looked cool, but we were too chicken to try it. Just got back and blogged about our own experience in Eilat. We even saw those 3 monkeys!
I probably wouldn’t have gone on the fireball had i not been offered a go for free… It always pays to be nice. That was one “high” of my stay in Eilat!
